One of our oldest farmers who
has given the subject considerable

The Tecumseh Chieftain says that
John Sherman has husked 10,000
bushels of corn this fall. He raised
4,600 bushels on 80 acres on the poor
farm, and the balance on 100 acres of
his own farm. This is a good sample
of the capabilities of Nebraska soil
for corn raising.

over the effects of his fall.
If we are allowed to judge from
the number of people in the city last

The Ulysses Dispatch prints as
original matter a small paragraph

misled sometime, if this thing con
tinues. Millions of dollars are spent in

as the older states,

The Butler Co. Press remarks
that S. S. Reynolds, senator elect of
Butler and Polk counties, is not a Dr.
Miller man. He is understood here
to be a thorough-going anti-monopolist,

much the same position as occupied
by senator Brown of this district,
although of the latter the Schuyler
Sun says he will be found democratic
Rev. Father Ryan, who has re
cently been in Chicago, gives a
graphic description of their slush and
mud, compared with Nebraska's good
natural roads. One year's residence
here will satisfy the most skeptical
of eastern farmers who have, daring
some parts of the year, to wade thro'
mud knee deep to get to station, post
office, store or church. Just think of
it, ye Nebraskans, who can trot your
teams along nature's best highway.
It will be well enough, perhaps,
for those who know how to make
syrup from sorghum and who like tbe
business, to sea what they can do with
the method of making sugar from
sorghum, discovered by Profs. Sco-
ville and Weber of tbe Illinois State
University. It is said that from 250
acres, there have been made 125,000
pounds of sugar and 22,000 gallons of
syrup, Worth $19,000, or an average of
$75 to tbe acre. Very tempting to a
Of course Columbus is interested
in any railroad scheme in this section
of country. The Boone County News
says that the talk about a railroad
from Norfolk to Grand Island is not
all speculation ; there is real founda
tion for the belief that tbe road will
be built in the not distant future, and
when it is built, Albion will not, as
some suppose, be left out in the cold.
This would take away from the Columbus-Norfolk
Tasker and Sons' sale took place
Dec. 14th, amounting to $2100. About
half the payments were cash. Milch
cows brought $30 to $35; yearling
heifers, $20 to $24; two year old
heifers $30 to $45 : one year old steers,
$23)4; two years old, $29. As all
will see, these wore excellent prices.
The stock were extra good grades,
and from what we are told of the
original investment by the Tasker
Bros, it undoubtedly pays well to
raise good stock.
A man by tbe name of Herch, a
bachelor of Stauton county, was found
last Thursday in the woods on the
banks of tbe Elkhorn froze to death.
In the middle of the river near by
was also found his wagon. The par

abaut as follows: A week ago last
Saturday Mr. Herch was in Stanton,

evening of that day somewhat under
the influence of liquor, aud this was

A goodly number of eastern
farmers will visit Nebraska this win
ter to look over the situation. We
have met several already who are full
of query concerning this region which
has so suddenly (as it would seem),
filled the eyes of our eastern friends.
Nebraska has great merits, many of
which are apparent to the most casual
observer, and some of which are
realized after a short residence, It
always seemed to us 'that, as none
should choose a wife for another, so
noue should select a residence for an
other. The best way for those con
templating a move is to come here,
and look over the situation for them
selves. Take nobody's say-so. Make
your own inquiries. Do your own
investigating. Use your own eyes
and judgment. If yon want to get
cheap land, however, it is our opin
ion, (and we don't hesitate to give it
freely), you must make your pur
chases before many years, for tbe rise
in price is rapid.
Bob. Maxwell, of Battle Creek,
has been appointed postmaster at that
town. Bob. will evidently give good

Genoa has been struck with a
streak of good luck. Workmen are
busy rejuvenating the old Pawnee
school-house for occupancy again as
an Indian school, and we are inform
ed that the government will next
summer erect two brick buildings
40x80 feet, three stories high, besides
about a dozen frame dwellings, for
the Indians, at a cost of $150,000.
Outside of the fact that this large sum
of money is to be expended there
next summer giving a decided in
crease to business, there is a general
air of thriftiness, prosperity and en
ergy about the town that is certainly
good to see. It will be a fact, sooner
or later, that tbe water power of tho
Beaver will be utilized for manufac
turing purposes, and the men of cap
ital, there and elsewhere in Nebraska,
will make a paying investment for
themselves, and also greatly benefit
their communities, by taking Time by
the forelock, seeking the practical
men, and building up trade. This is
the gospel of thrift in these days for
Nebraska towns favorably located.
Tbe M. E. Sunday school and
members of the church departed from
their usual custom and prepared their
Christmas tree, held their festival and
distributed their presents to the little
folks Saturday evening. Tbe children,
parents and friends filled the church
with a crowd, many being unable to
procure a seat, otherwise the occasion
was enjoyable ; and to the little folks,
judging from appearances, were filled
with hopeful expectation, which was
fully realized in the distribution of
preseuts. The programme consisted
of music by tbe choir. Opening
prayer and address by Mr. Swortzel,
which were brief and very appro
priate. Dialogue and song by tbe in
fant class. They performed their
parts with credit to themselves. Select
readings appropriate for the occasion
by Miss Anna George and Miss Mate
Wadswortb and an essay by Mr. C. J.
Garlow, followed by music from the
choir closed this part of the proceed
ings, when Santa Claus was announc
ed, who was dressed in a fur coat and
cap with a horribly ugly face and a
nose not easily described, but not in
disguise we learn the young Mr. Mor
gan is passibly handsome ; and at once
he proceeded, assisted by others, to
distribute the numerous presents.

The corner stone of the Catholic

present witnessing the ceremony.
Last Saturday night the Postville
school house was filled to its utmost
capacity with an eager crowd, which
bad gathered to witness the contest
between the Postville and the Gran
ville debaters. At seven o'clock the
house was called to order by the
president, the minutes of the previous
meeting were read, and the evening
exercises were introduced by a song.
The president then announced the
debate and read the subject, namely :
"Resolved, That the right of suffrage
should be extended to the ladies."
The Granville debaters (who were on
the affirmative), we.re P. J. Coleman,
P. J. Bentz and T. O'Neil ; the Post
ville debaters were Mr. Caldwell,
John Walker, Esq., aud Mr. Arnold.
Two of the judges chosen were of
Postville, and the other one from
Granville. Judges decided, and house
approved of the decision, in favor of
Granville "Juveniles" (a pet name by
which our worthy opponents loved to
call us). The whole affair was con
ducted in the best of spirits, and we
heartily thank the Postville society
for the gentlemanly way in which
they received us. We cannot help
thinking that our literaries might be
greatly improved if there were more
debates between different societies, as
it affords an excellent opportunity for
debaters to porceive and mend their

One of the workmen, missing him,

Mb. Editob : In a sample copy of

find a representation, and tbe follow

grass, viz :
"lieana Luxurians (Teosinte). A
remarkable grass which attains to the
height of ten or twelve feet. The
amount of fodder it will produce is
almost incredible. It somewhat re
sembles Indian corn, but tbe leaves
are longer, broader and sweeter."
Does any one of your numerous
readers and able correspondents know
anything about this Teosinte? Will
it stand our climate? How is it to be
raised? Can it be cured for winter
use? Will some reliable seedman
having the seed advertise it in the
